The winter season is prime time for upper respiratory infections such as sore throats, ear infections, sinus infections, colds and bronchitis. While some of these ailments can be successfully treated with antibiotics, others cannot.
Doctors often tell patients that viral infections, such as the common cold, need to run their course. The bad news for those looking for relief from symptoms is that a cold can last up to two weeks.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, plenty of rest, adequate fluids and over-the-counter pain relievers can help those suffering from upper respiratory infections feel better.
You may also find relief by using a clean humidifier and by abstaining from smoking or subjecting yourself to second-hand smoke and other environmental pollutants.
The Venta-Airwasher is a two-in-one product that humidifies and purifies at the same time to make air cleaner and more comfortable.
These products utilize cold evaporation, which is recognized as the best way to clean and humidify the environment.
Venta-Airwashers use water rather than filter pads to humidify and purify at the same time. This process eliminates millions of particles in the environment, leaving homes with fresh, clean, humidified air.
And, because there are no filters to clean or replace, maintenance is simple.
